Just a Regular Lawyer Who Becomes a Spiritual Healer. The Reluctant Healer is a smart, inventive, and carefully-plotted story about a logical, left-brained New York City lawyer who meets and falls in love with a creative, right-brained spiritual healer. Erica believes in the power of energetic healing, while Will claims he's just a regular guy from the suburbs. The novel follows Will's journey of resistance, exploration, and discovery as he, in an authentic, relatable, and often humorous way, becomes drawn into a second career as a spiritual healer-for hire. Through clever narration, engaging scenes, and situational humour, Himmel paints a portrait of a reasonable man who traces a path between scepticism and belief, entering a territory he's never known before and sometimes crossing hard, moral limits along the way. Will, the protagonist is flawed, humble, and reasonably agnostic about his abilities, yet he risks everything he's known to look for meaning not only in spiritual things he doesn't fully understand but also in the conventional, mainstream life he's always lived. This is not just a book about a lawyer who lives with and loves his soul mate. It's a bigger story that says something about how people in the world get along with and coexist with others who are different from-even the opposite of-them. Written for fans of literary fiction, humorous fiction, fiction about attorneys, and literature about New Age topics, this book is about how people come together to embrace their differences, love each other well, and bring out the best in one another. And it's a book about how we figure ourselves out.

Author Biography

I am a founding partner of Himmel & Bernstein, LLP, a law firm in the Flatiron district of New York City. My career prior to law was in book publishing, where I worked as an editorial assistant at William Morrow for Harvey Ginsberg, whose writers included Saul Bellow and John Irving. Under Harvey's supervision, I edited manuscripts selected for publication and I also read submissions from agents. Before that, I worked as an editorial assistant at the The Dial Press, where I helped with the editing of manuscripts. One of the books I worked on, Teaching Television by Dorothy and Jerome Singer, contains an acknowledgment of my editorial service. My wife and I live in Manhattan and with our daughter.
